For the past seven years, Horacio Pagani and his team have been working hard on a project under the codename C9, and they’ve now introduced the completed project: the 2014 and 2016 Pagani Huayra in North Miami Beach FL. The Huayra’s predecessor was, of course, the Zonda, which got its start in the ‘90s. Realizing that, Pagani decided they needed to create something new from the ground up. In the end, the new Pagani Huayra consists of over 4,000 components that combine to create a truly incredible vehicle.
While the Huayra might be the successor of the Zonda, it is completely different. From the very beginning, Horacio knew how different it would be by imagining a vehicle with a 70 mm increase to the track and a 40 mm shift in cabin position. Everything would be different, except for the passion that was poured into it. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.
Beneath the hood of the new Pagani Huayra rests a Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 twin-turbocharged engine, a true powerhouse marvel. The engine is capable of doling out 730 horsepower alongside 738 pound-feet of torque from 2,600 to 4,200 RPM. This enables the Huayra to have an incredible top speed of 230 miles per hour and the ability to hit 60 miles per hour in 3 seconds flat. A few other important performance specs include a 7-speed gearbox and a curb weight of 2,976 pounds.
The vehicle was designed with the thought of aerodynamics at the forefront of everyone’s minds from beginning to end. Active aerodynamics were included in the vehicle courtesy of four flaps that activate according to some test results, and when the flaps combine with the vehicle’s active front suspension it optimizes the downforce and drag coefficient. Furthermore, the vehicle is more efficient than one might think thanks to early consideration of environmental restrictions.
If you think the Pagani Huayra is the right vehicle for you, be sure to give us a call and we’ll see if we can’t get you behind the wheel of one as soon as possible.
